brand new eXmark (less than 300hrs). Didn't have trailer plate or registration. cop took the trailer and everything that was on it (did help me unload my grill tho).

thankfully it was just a rental.

their nutz if they think im payin for the rental tho. can you believe they painted over the vin. which doesnt show up in the cops system anyway.

well. technicialy he didnt pull me over till i had already mostly pulled over. he was on my tail so i knew he was pullin me over. so i just did. he flipped lights on. looked at my recipt which only showed the mower. guy from the state came and scrapped off hte pain on the vin. vin didnt show up. so they impounded it. tomorow i get to have an interesting conversation with the rental company.

oh. and the wheel motor is going out. the whoel time i was affraid the mower was goign to stop and i woudl have to leave it in a cust yard. guess i dont have to worry about that.

technicaily he coudl have given me a ticket. but decided to impound it and let me off.

Rental company paid the bill. i didnot pay my bill. i saw him checking plates as i drove off. iv rented from there after. i dont really like to because they dont maintain their equipment well.

unfortunatly they are selling that trailer and sending the mower out with a smaller one. if i have to rent it again ill have to hope my trailer is working well if i want my walk behind aswell.

im waiting for a solenoid for my mower. hopefully with the new wheel motor the pump wont go screwy and itl be reliable this year.

Thanks for posting. That's funny. You had to be ready to throw in the towel. When the rented mower is barely working, then gets impounded... I'd be done for the day. Every day is an adventure eh?

actually it was my mower that went out. still broken. I bought a new wheel motor a 2 weeks ago. went to start rousing the pump and found a bad solenoid.

always something to fix
